Antarctica on a Plate

by Alexa Thomson

Random House, 2003, ISBN 1740512073, paperback

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, age toned pages (see photographs)

“Antarctica lends itself to tales of adventure and heartbreak.  The landscape is polarised – beautiful and deadly in equal measure.  But Alexa doesn’t scale mountains or trek to the Pole.  Instead, armed with an old cookbook, she attempts to create three-course meals with no electricity or running water and struggles to defrost meat in sub-zero temperatures.  Life in a thin nylon tent in the company of scientists, explorers and eccentrics soon begins to take on extraordinary dimensions.  As 120-kilometre-an-hour winds blow and tensions rise, friendships – and love – are forged in this frozen neighbourhood.”
